MARCH 2020 NEWSLETTER

Message from our President, Tom Seeley

Welcome to our new members and a thank you to those members who have renewed.

The Coordinating Committee is working on all the 2020 club events, including the Cabin Party & General Meeting on Sunday, March 1; the Anniversary Dinner in June; the Summer Picnic in July; the Thanksgiving Dinner in November; and the Holiday Party in December. And more – many more events each month.

The cabin party is almost here. There will be a General Membership Meeting at the cabin party. Please plan to attend the General Membership Meeting even if you don’t sign up for the cabin party.

I hope that our members are enjoying the nice winter weather with outdoor events.

Spring is still Coming – eventually.

  • Tom
